Param Aggarwal

Engineering Manager for cross-platform front-ends.

Working on Mutual Funds and Groww Balance at Groww. Previously, worked on at-home workouts at CureFit and multi-language support and pre-order capability at Flipkart.

Before that, explored revamping HR tools to be data-driven instead of subscription-revenue driven called Caliber, at startup incubator Craftworks.

In the Self-Driving Car Engineer Nanodegree at Udacity, a team of four of us, drove a car in a simulated environment to obey traffic signs purely based on camera data. I worked on building sensor fusion and localization algorithms as well as sophisticated car control in a simulated environment. I also worked on multiple projects related to lane and vehicle detection as well as traffic sign classification that use deep learning and computer vision techniques.

As a Web and Mobile App Developer at Myntra Designs, Bangalore, I worked on the PHP to Node.js migration for the desktop and mobile websites. I was the first developer on the iOS app and I eventually helped migrate large parts of the iOS app to React Native. Our team explored conversational interfaces in our incubator lab.


Senior Engineering Manager - Groww

  • Working with the Mutual Funds and Primaries app team.

Engineering Manager - CureFit

  • Working with the team bringing fitness and wellness solutions direct to your home.

UI Engineer 3 - Flipkart

  • Designed language handling solution for web & react-native properties.
  • Led implementation of app/web UI changes for pre-booking functionality.

Member of Tech Staff - Craftworks

  • Explore new ideas and convert them to products with the possibility of eventually spinning them out into independent companies.
  • Caliber - Rethink HR tooling to be data-revenue driven instead of subscription-revenue driven - similar to how Gmail had disrupted email services.
  • Kubric - Programmatic video generation to enable personalization for each viewer - enables interesting marketing usecases.

Tech Lead - Myntra

  • Led a team of four of us, as we explored conversational interfaces and chat bots.
  • We built a platform for configuring automated responses and integrations into our iOS and Android apps.

Senior Software Engineer - Myntra

  • Worked on a new system to allow fully custom layouts that could be configured from the server based on a CSS-like spec. Primitives like text, image and icons could be used along with this layout config to make rich sale banners and landing pages.
  • Worked on the new feed homepage for the iOS app using React Native.
  • This tech migration helped reduce deployment friction and greatly improve development times for everyone on the project.

Software Engineer - Myntra

  • Worked on the PHP to Node.js migration as part of the team that rebuilt the desktop search page. I redid the header and the footer on the website as per the new design with a new floating navigation bar.
  • Worked on the PHP to Node.js migration as part of the team that rebuilt the mobile website with a focus on performance and compatibility with non-JS browsers. We also reimplemented checkout flow to work without Javascript.
  • Worked on the desktop to mobile app migration as part of the team that built the iOS app. I built the first prototype and we shipped out the complete app in a little over 3 months. The homepage of the app was built to be completely configurable based on a config loaded from the server - it was a series of widgets like images, banners and slideshows.
  • The tech migration helped us be able to scale up to our massive sale events. The iOS app contributes upwards of 20% revenue.

QA Engineer - Cisco

  • Part of the team that performed QA on Nexus 1000v series of switches for virtualisation platforms
  • We tested for stability, performance and throughput under various conditions.
  • Also installation and upgrade scenarios were performed and tested.

Intern - NTU, Singapore

  • Worked on the firmware and software for a custom embedded development for teaching undergraduate students.
  • Firmware for driving all sensors and actuators on board.
  • Interfaced with CPLD, FPGA and ARM microprocessor.
  • The board also consisted of accelerometer, IR emitter and receiver, DAC and ADC as well as Flash storage and RAM.


Building a Facebook Paper-like UI with React Native - I built a working copy of the open-close cards carousel from the original Facebook Paper app as a technical demo. It uses the Animated library and React Native.

Mapping a Room with Ultrasonic Sensors - I attempt to map the shape of my room using four HC-SR04 Ultrasonic distance sensors and a magnetic compass to measure the heading.

Scrolling Tweets - This little device gets the latest tweets from the internet via WiFi, and displays them on a tiny display.

Hungry (Design Mock) - A prototype design for a food take-away ordering app.

Nearby Cabs - Nearby cab search with RethinkDB geo-queries and changefeeds.

Dockerweb - A web UI to create Docker containers from the Docker Hub.

Event Dashboard - Realtime tweets on a large canvas using websockets

WeFiddle - An online collaborative art canvas

Thrifty - Guess the Price Game for Fashion Clothing.

Stylebook - Explore and shop for clothing collections

Flash talk at JSFoo 2013

Spoke about server-side rendering before it was popular. Given with my friend Chetan Agrawal.

Flash talk at MetaRefresh 2014

Spoke about the proliferation of backend-as-a-service tools before they were popular. Built a collaborative art canvas that runs in the browser.

Flash talk at JSFoo 2019

Spoke about JAM stack trend before it was popular, the idea of putting a CDN on top of the primary server and caching assets seletively.

DIY Reflow Soldering at Home

SMD soldering practice with a twist - with solder paste, a hot pan, infrared thermometer and really tiny components.

Start with Arduino for Just $3

Don’t use an Arduino Uno board — instead use an ESP8266 based module that is many times more capable than the Arduino, but still ten times cheaper!

Electronics Mailbag

This was my very first batch of orders from AliExpress with WeMos, Neo6M, Sonoff, ESP8266, Arduino, STM32.

Upgrading from 8 Year Old Arduino (Leonardo vs. Diecimila)

I talk about my beloved eight year old Arduino and then we unbox my new Leonardo board.

Meet Roy

Roy learns that life is more than what he considers it to be and people are more than what they seem to be. Fortunately, he is not too late.

Isko Khaiye

An advertisement for a mouth freshener. A bunch of us get together to prove why you should be having it too!

The Double-Crested Cormorant

A bird that can fly, land on water, do some fishing, and then fly again. Nature. Beautiful.
